328. Working on Families of Elements Project

Students busily putting together their videos on their element families. The picture doesn't do justice to the level of activity in the room.

A panoramic shot. You may need to view the large image, but there's something odd going on with the fire.

The Submarine Car Wash vacuums and washes your windows. It's a little more expensive, but it's worth it!

Sam fancied up our boring lampshades with some fabric. The end result looks /much/ better than the original.

Snowy burden- Jan. 11

Snowy burden

The weather report predicted 4-8 inches of snow overnight into Sunday. We woke up to maybe 2 inches and a little bit of ice. I played around with the digital macro setting on the camera for this picture.

It's a close up of a bush in front of our house

The Guest Room

Some readers of this blog have voiced concerns over the state of the
guest room. Here's a new picture. Please note the recent upgrades:
- Blinds for the window. Now the neighbors don't get to see you change.
- Warm blanket. It's winter. Heat is expensive.
- Lamps. Since it gets dark at 4:30 here, you'll be glad there's
artificial light.

If you're lucky we'll even open up the heating vent in the guest room.

New furniture

We picked up a living room table set we'd been eyeing for awhile.
Here's the new look.

Lines were very long, but they had the precinct set up very
efficiently. We only had to wait 25 minutes or so from walking in the
door to walking out.

Homemade Marshymallows

We cooked up some fresh marshmallows today, trying out a recipe that
we might use to make Halloween s'mores next weekend.

They turned out really well, though now we have about a year's worth
of marshmallow. Good thing they freeze well.
